Behavior Management Plans • Clear expectations to break down classroom rules • Allow for self-monitoring skills • Track progress for student and IEP • Focus on teaching not on behavior • Not always enforced by all teachers • All participates on the same page (consistent) • Consistent reward usage • Sticking with it after improvement! • Too disruptive to learning • Peer issues Strengths Difficulties
Classroom Structures • Are there specific classes that behavior occurs most often? • What do you know about that classroom? • Is it related to an already identified disability? • What classroom management strategies are present? • Is it a class that your co-teach in?
Teacher Tolerance • Talk with the classroom teacher • What is tolerable to them? • What are deal-breakers • How would he/she like behaviors handled? • Be supportive
Accommodations vs. Behavior Plans • less significant behaviors • Can be controlled by teacher behaviors • Examples • Aggression • Verbal • Physical • Socially unacceptable • Not age appropriate Accommodations Behavior Plans
Types of Behavior Data • Frequency – How often it happens • Use for things like hitting, getting out of seat, blurting out, swearing, turning in homework • Duration – How long does the behavior last? • Use for things like remaining in seat, crying, tantruming, sleeping in class • Interval – Is it occurring at a certain interval? • Use for very high frequency behaviors such as blurting out, sitting in seat, working on a task, drumming on the desk • Latency – How much time elapses before the behavior is exhibited? • Use for things such as beginning a task / following a direction after a command is given, turning in completed work, stopping a misbehavior when redirected
Data Collections • Important to do before planning any BIP • Variety of forms to use • Have a timer and a good seat • Examples from article
Functional Behavior Analysis • Essential for some students • EDBD • Not for Autism or ADHD • Best done with the support of the school psychologist and parent • Bring the data!
What is motivating? • Student Interview • Provide a list of choices • Provide specific times of day • Mix it up! • Involve the whole community • Favorite teachers, other students, parents, outside agencies • Student Questionnaires • All students at the beginning of the year
